This event will set out the aims, aspirations and challenges at the outset of the delivery of the demanding project. The refurbishment and remodelling of Pentrehafod Comprehensive School is a major project for the City and County of Swansea which will breathe new life into this well-established facility. Architects Stride Treglown are delivering the project for Swansea with contractors Morgan Sindall. The existing school buildings are currently in very poor condition with the many of the demountable units on site reaching the end of their useful life.  The new proposals will accommodate 1000 11-16 pupils, maintaining the current capacity of the school. The scheme addresses maintenance backlog issues, improves the performance of the building fabric and modifies internal layouts to move them closer to meeting current space standards. Importantly, it connects previously separate buildings by introducing a double height central social space for atrium dining. The school will benefit from a brand new entrance that will welcome staff, pupils and visitors.

Constructing Excellence in Wales is working in collaboration with the team as part of the Enabling Zero Waste scheme to provide a detailed insight into the achievability of zero waste at present, along with identifying any associated barriers to achieving the targets, and disseminating best practice, solutions and opportunities. The aim is to establish if, and how, the construction industry can achieve the zero waste targets established in the Welsh Government's waste strategy, Towards Zero Waste. The results will also help to inform the industry about planning to generate less waste, reusing materials and using more recycled content.
